In Focus: Trey Anastasio Band Impress in Final Brooklyn Bowl Show

Trey Anastasio Band closed out a long weekend run with the second of two sold out shows at The Brooklyn Bowl on Monday Night. Playing the beloved Brooklyn venue for only the third time, fans didn’t hesitate on packing this venue/bowling alley to capacity. This is one of the smaller venues TAB will play, but it seemed like Trey’s eight-piece solo outfit felt right at home in this tiny space.

The show began with “Blaze On” a song TAB debuted three nights earlier at Anastasio’s Me and My Mind documentary premier. The band continued in top form offering up TAB favorites Including “Alive Again,” “Night Speaks to a Woman,” “Curlews Call,” and “Dark and Down” before bringing an amazing first set to an end with “First Tube,” the Phish fan favorite.

After a short set break Trey and his amazing band returned with “Money Love and Change” where Anastasio shined with amazing guitar work. The rest of the set included speak to me, the first “The Land of Nod” since 2017, and a fun version of “Alaska” that the entire crowd sand every word to. The set came to a close with a smooth pairing of “Shine” into “Rise/Come Together.” The band returned for a two song encore offering up “Drifting” and “Ghost.”

Trey Anastasio Band Continues with a four night run in the southeast at the end of May as they prepare for a full card of summer dates. See a full gallery from the show Monday below.
